Such measures^ might properly be considered after we have set ourselves to the task ot cleaning up this great clty--not before. You may quote mo as saying that Mr. Cutting, ae President of the Citizens’ Union, has done a most Indis­ creet thing.\ John Do 1 As a whole, Mr, Cutting’s statement seems to mo an admirable one. As to details, they are, of course, open to discussion. His main proposition Is unanswerable; reform, economy, a .Mayor of Ideal Integrity, ability, and public spirit, ore but means to an end that this city be made a better home lor every one- in it, with least prac­ ticable cost to Its citizens. It Is this that our citizens want, and a definite programme to this end that they demand. It they be­ lieve that a reform movement will give It to them more promptly and mote fully than Tammany, they will support reform. They favor honesty and economy: but If they got an Idea thatreformers reformers will not give them os nlUoh ’ ' ‘ \ will spoilsmen, men in office. The only ground, therefore, on which any citizens' movement can hope to get the sup­ port of the voters 1s that It proposes to do what they want done. This presupposes thatltknowswhattheywant done, and pledges Its aid to do it—that Is, that it can and will state Its progronune, as the more press­ ing questions of policy among which cer­ tainly are municipal ownership of public utilities and municipal Initiative In social betterment. This mokes me regret that some worthy people seem to have misun­ derstood Mr. Cutting. I understand that he Is In favor of both these propositions.
